Tampa Drive 1


Li Mei with the straw hat she had bought in Atlantic City a month earlier.

We were essentially driving along barrier islands. The Gulf of Mexico was just to the right.

This area has some beautiful houses, such as the one on the right across the water.

This little guy flew over and was observing us.

Here he is up close.

We walked over to the beach at one of the few points of public access, adjacent to a little park.

We wondered why the sand was darker and patted down. Turns out that there had been a big downpour an hour or so earlier.

Various seabirds resting.

Li Mei in front of a couple of young surfboarders. As you can see, they didn't have much surf.

This is the little park next to the beach.
